Jennifer Adair is a historian of Latin America and the Caribbean, with a specific focus on modern Argentina and the Southern Cone. Her research examines the restoration of democracy in Argentina following decades of repressive military rule and political crisis. She is currently writing a book that examines how everyday citizens and grassroots community activists negotiated Argentina's transition to democracy over the course of the 1980s, in the midst of state retrenchment, economic crisis and the legacy of human rights abuses. Professor Adair received her PhD from New York University in 2013. Her research has been funded by fellowships from the Fulbright, American Council of Learned Societies, and the National Endowment for the Humanities. Before joining Fairfield University in 2014, she was a Visiting Assistant Professor of History and Politics at Bates College. Her general research and teaching interests include: Colonial and Modern Latin America; Citizenship, Welfare, and Inequality; Democratic Transitions; the Social and Cultural History of Food; Human Rights and Memory; the Cold War in Latin America; Social Movements; and the History of US-Latin American Relations.
